Puducherry chief minister V.Narayanasamy on Friday said it is the Centre’s duty to help the Union Territory by sanctioning required funds for developmental activities.
Addressing a meeting, organised by PCC to celebrate the 122nd birth anniversary of former Congress CM Edouard Goubert at the party office, Narayanasamy mentioned his visit to Delhi recently and his meetings with the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, Finance Minister and others to seek adequate funds for Puducherry.

“I get the positive signals that Centre would assist Puducherry to meet its commitments in developmental programmes.It is, however, the duty of the Centre to help Puducherry as it is our right to claim for funds,” he said.
He hit out at the previous AINRC government led by N.Rangasamy, alleging that various public sectors had suffered losses during its tenure.
“Development is the only goal for us and it would be our relentless efforts to relieve government undertakings and government departments of the present ills,” he added.
